Online registration is now open for the 2009 Game Developers Conference Europe, and will remain so until August 18th.
GDC Europe is due to take place from August 17th to 19th in Cologne, Germany, and will host over 80 lectures, panels, and keynotes from international industry speakers.
“GDC Europe will be the definitive European developer event this year,” said event director Frank Sliwka. “We are combining the unique strengths, history, and reach of the GDC to Europe and creating an event truly focused in serving developers in Europe and worldwide.”
The conference, which is to be held in conjunction with the consumer event Gamescon, promises to focus on business and management, game design, production and programming, and will give special attention to online games and the opportunities in developing for social networking communities.
Early bird discount passes are available until July 29th, and can be found at the event's registration page.
